It’s been a relatively dry monsoon season so far this year. I remembered the downpours and puddle jumping of last year, and I braced myself for another few months of that upon our return. To our surprise, we’ve had some overcast days, a few breakthroughs of sun days, but very few rainy days. Nonetheless, getting out and about with the kids when the threat of a downpour could be minutes away can be tough. The last few weeks our solution has been swimming in our apartment pool. They built a cover over the top to block any rain and the kids don’t mind the chilly water.
